About HIPGive and Hispanics in Philanthropy:
HIPGive is the first and only bilingual crowdfunding platform focused solely on advancing Latino social impact projects and promoting philanthropy across the Americas. On HIPGive you can support a social project or start your own; read and share stories about Latino generosity; and make a real impact on the issues that matter most to you. Our goal is to grow into the biggest digital community for champions of Latino social good.
Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP), a nonprofit with more than 32 years of experience, strengthens Latino leadership, equity, and voice by leveraging philanthropic resources. We partner with a transnational network of foundations to make impactful investments in the Latino community, and we help Latino nonprofits access funds and develop their leadership so they can effectively address the most pressing issues facing our communities.
- Nonprofits can raise funds and gain unmatched visibility for their projects; access customized resources and tools to run effective campaigns; and participate in special initiatives to double the funds raised through matching dollars and prizes.
- Individuals can donate to a cause they believe in; read and share stories about social impact throughout the Americas; and join a larger community of social-good champions.
- Foundations and corporations can partner with us to show their support and multiply their impact in Latino communities through targeted campaigns, special initiatives, matching funds, customized landing pages, and much more.
Since April 2014, Latino-focused nonprofits have raised more than $1 million USD through 230 projects on HIPGive, reaching more than 200,000 web visitors, and a social media audience of more than 30,000 individuals, organizations, and businesses interested in social impact initiatives serving Latino communities.
